AP Source: Ole Miss aware of NCAA Notice of Allegations

BY foxsports • January 29, 2016

A person familiar with the investigation says Mississippi has been notified by the NCAA of rules violations involving the football, women's basketball and track and field programs.

The person said Friday that the university has been notified of the NCAA's Notice of Allegations against the sports. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The announcement was not unexpected but comes at a bad time for the Ole Miss football program, which is trying to lock down one of the nation's most highly regarded recruiting classes.

The NCAA has been investigating Ole Miss since 2012 - starting with the women's basketball program and later extending to other programs.

Yahoo! Sports first reported that Ole Miss was aware of the Notice of Allegations.
